MINNEAPOLIS | 30 3rd St S | 400ft+ | 40 fl | Pro

Plans for a 36 and 40 story tower are in place for the Nicollet Hotel block.

This block might sound familiar since it's the block of the formerly proposed Nicollet Gateway tower, which was 80 stories. Just to not disappoint people, I did hear a rumor from a councilman that Duval, the developers on the 80 story, is still looking for another location to put their tower. The City of Minneapolis currently owns this lot and went through the process of elimination for 4 different proposals. United Properties in the end won the property. The city is going to try to push for 8-12 more stories and currently the outlook is good.

The tower was the second-tallest among the four submitted and included the most residential units — 300. It features a Canopy by Hilton, the new boutique hotel brand in the Hilton portfolio. It would add to a miniboom of hotel construction in that part of downtown; two other developers have proposed boutique hotels just a few blocks from the site.

The tower’s exterior will be outfitted with vertical LED lighting that will light up in patterns meant to emulate the nearby river. The lights also can be programmed to reflect seasonal and downtown celebrations. That would make the tower the first in Minneapolis to have a building-size lighting display, something that has become a feature of skyscrapers in cities around the world over the past decade.
